This paper describes a method for calculating gain spectra of quantum well laser structures. The approach is based on the Semi-conductor Bloch equations, with Coulomb correlation effects treated at the level of quantum kinetic theory in the Markovian limit. Results obtained from applying this method to an InGaN quantum well laser are presented.
